Stampin’ Up Bring On The Presents Buffalo Check Holiday Card

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Hope your week is going well.

I’ve got another holiday card for you today.  I used the Stampin’ Up Bring On The Presents Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Buffalo Check Stamp.  These are not your traditional holiday colors, but I wanted to try a new technique that I watched one of my team members do on Sunday night.  She turned the Buffalo Check stamp into plaid.  Mary Deatherage from Stamps – n – Lingers is very creative that way.  You can see her card and video with all the examples here.

Here’s my card for today.

I started with a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using my Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to the front of my card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped it with the Buffalo Check stamp in Grapefruit Grove Ink using my Stamparatus to make sure I got it straight.  I took my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Marker and drew the lines down between each row of the check.  I then took my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Marker and drew lines on each side of the check blocks.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Bow image from Bring On The Presents Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the bow in using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends Markers then cut it out with the coordinating All The Presents Thinlits Dies. I stamped the tag from Bring On The Presents stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink and the sentiment from the same set in Mint Macaron.  I cut the tag out with the coordinating thinlit die from the set too.

I tied a piece of Grapefruit Grove colored twine, from the Nature’s Twine pack, to the tag and attached it to the back of the bow with a Mini Glue Dot.

I adhered the bow to the package with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the package to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the small bow from Bring On The Presents stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink in the top corner.  I colored it in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from  the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink in the center.  I adhered the inner liner to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the small bow on the bottom corners of a Medium Whisper White Envelope in Mint Macaron Ink and colored them in with my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Even though these are not traditional holiday colors I had a lot of fun making this plaid present.  The color combinations are endless, give it a try.  Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Happy Stamping!
